The Buffalo Sabres and AT&T are teaming up this holiday season with the “Text-to-Give” program benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo.

From Dec. 2 until Dec. 22, Sabres fans can text the word SABRES to 50555 to donate $5 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo.  The proceeds will go toward the purchase of holiday presents for children in the 13 Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo locations.

Fans who donate during any Sabres game throughout the promotion will be automatically registered to win a chance to skate at First Niagara Center.

“We are extremely fortunate to have the Buffalo Sabres and AT&T as part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo family,” said Diane L. Rowe, Chief Professional Officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo. “Their continued generosity will allow us to bring joy and security to the thousands of children we serve and who count on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo as a constant, stable environment in their life.”

In addition, Sabres players will be making in-store appearances at local AT&T locations. Derek Roy will be signing autographs at the AT&T Store at 1741 Sheridan Drive in Tonawanda, NY on Monday, Dec. 5 from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. Nathan Gerbe will do the same from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at the AT&T Store at 3505 Amelia Drive in Orchard Park, NY.

"We're proud to team up with the Sabres to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo, an organization that provides much needed services such as character building, career development and overall life skills for our young people every day," said Robert Holliday, vice president and general manager Upstate New York, AT&T. "‘Tis the season to give, and we know that Sabres Fans will join AT&T in doing our part to give back to the Buffalo community."

Since 1926, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo has been committed to making sure there is a place for every child who needs after school care and to provide a friendly, caring environment that allows kids to be their best. They make every effort to enrich the lives of girls and boys whom other youth agencies have had difficulty in reaching. Every day, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo demonstrate their commitment to children by providing them with access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.
